Sip and savour a taste of country living

Packwood is set in a 1000 acres of pristine countryside, breathtaking views of mountains, indigenous forest and the distant ocean, located in the middle of Plett and Knysna, owned and managed by Peter and Vicky Gent who emigrated in 1997 from England, fourth generation farmers.  Having always had a very keen interest in fine wine the Gent’s introduced their little vineyard to the estate in 2006. 3.5 ha of cool climate cultivars can be found – Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay all growing in harmony and cared for with passion.  Teddy Hall Cape Wine Makers Guild and Vivienne Harpur award winning wine maker offered a wealth of experience, providing instrumental support to Vicky as Packwood’s viticulturist and now budding winemaker in taking the grapes to the bottle.

 Our handcrafted, MCC bubbly and award winning wines are available to sip, savour and purchase from our tasting room, Monday – Fri from 11am to 3pm. excluding public holidays.  Bookings are essential.

Experience a taste of country lifestyle living and book a Packwood Cheese and Wine Lunch. Using produce from the vineyard, dairy and gardens, lunches are served outside (weather dependant) under the blue skies of Plett with nature in abundance and views to remember forever. Ideal for small groups, also available for private functions.

If you dream of living in the countryside on a working estate, Packwood’s four star Country House is available for rent with an additional three self-catering cottages.
